From the pawprints all around the body and other evidence obvious from the injuries, Sheriff’s detectives quickly determined that the man had suffered a vicious attack by dogs, reports the Handford Sentinel.
Neighbors reported that they had seen four Pit Bulls in the area earlier and detectives tracked the dogs to a nearby residence, where they found four Pit Bulls with blood on them. The dogs were identified as those that had been seen loose.
The Pit Bulls were captured by Animal Control Officers and taken to Liberty Animal Control Shelter in Fresno.
The district attorney’s office is conducting an investigation to determine whether charges will be filed against the dogs’ owner, reports KCBS News.
